2013 has been a very colouful & successfull year and my art work has spread all over the UK. Autumn has only just arrived so there's more time for even more to be achieved. Here's a recap of where I have been and what I have been upto so far:
Norfolk - Norwich - I began work in January on four of the 3-D Gorilla sculpture commissions for 'GoGo Gorillas' sponsored by corporates including Marks & Spencer, Castle Mall, Starfish Installations & DIM Graphics.
Birmingham - 'International Trade Fair' - February saw the release of my Greeting Card Range & China Range now sold in galleries & indepenedant retailers all over the UK.
Norfolk - Sheringham - 'Creativity at Home' opens in Sheringham with my art work exhibited in the gallery over the summer.
Cornwall - Padstow - 5 originals were delivered in March to The Picture House Gallery in Padstow ready for the summer exhibition
Essex - Colchester - I began work in April on 3 commissions of the 3D scultpures of 8 foot-tall girraffes ready for the 'Stand Tall' campaign. Corpoarte sponsors included Freeport Shopping Village and Big Yellow Self Storage.
Norwich - Exhibition at the Crome Gallery, Elm Hill, Norwich in May.
Suffolk - Southwold - Originals are exhibited at the Buckenham Gallery for the Summer from June onward.
Norfolk - Cromer - I spent time back in Cromer in July where Jarrolds now stock my greeting cards as well as the North Norfolk Tourist information Centre. August arrived and saw a very successfull exhibition at The Garden House Gallery where originals exhibited sold out quickly.
Essex - Colchester - Three of the giraffes sculptures were auctioned off at a public auction raising £9,600 for Charity in September.
Norwich - Norfolk - Four of my Gorillas were auctioned off in October raising a combined total of £19,700 for good causes. That totals £29,300 raised for charity from my artwork sculptures generated at auction.
I still managed to fit in holidays to Tunisia, Gran Canaria (twice in fact), Ibiza and Yorkshire all of which I failed to tan! Hence plenty of ''Fake tan & Fanta'' was consumed! (The title of my upcoming autobiography - coming to all good book shops near you!)
